Ten Tweets Thursday with @CubReporterK

Welcome to Ten Tweets Thursday, the weekly feature where Comicosity harasses a poor comic book loving person with a Twitter interview of ten specific questions. This week, we dig deeper into the mind of We Talk Comics podcast co-host and Comicosity reviewer Keith Callbeck (@CubReporterK).

#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?

It was a cross-over between Amazing Spider-man & Byrne’s Fantastic Four. I learned to read with comics but that’s the first I remember.

#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?

Booster Gold and Superman.

#3 What is your favorite limited or mini-series of all time?


#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?

Digital as a disposable medium. Print when I’m borrowing of course. Trades for what goes in the Permanent Collection.

#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read?

The books from ComixTribe, a company just starting out so they are printed in the hundreds.

#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?

Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, Dan Jurgens

#7 Do you listen to music while reading? If so, what genre?

Rarely listen to music when reading comics.

#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?

I’m primarily a DC fan. But I’ll follow a few creators wherever they work, as long as it isn’t into the quagmire of Marvel events.

#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?

Dan Jurgens, Michael Zulli, John Byrne

#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?

Scott Snyder’s Swamp Thing #4.
